Former first lady Michelle Obama countered President Trump’s attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color by emphasizing the importance of America’s diversity.

“What truly makes our country great is its diversity,” wrote Obama in a tweet Friday afternoon. “I’ve seen that beauty in so many ways over the years. Whether we are born here or seek refuge here, there’s a place for us all. We must remember it’s not my America or your America. It’s our America.”

Trump has spent the week attacking Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., a Somali refugee who became a U.S. citizen at age 17. He initially urged Omar — along with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib — to “go back” to their “broken and crime infested” countries. The tweets earned a condemnation from the House but it didn’t stop the attacks, as Trump supporters chanted “Send her back!” at a rally Wednesday night when the president began criticizing Omar.
